Here it is everyone! The announcement of my new project!
I had planned to wait until I had everything set up, but I really want to share it with you all.
I am in the process of setting up a new blog/website called Independent Creatives. Although I do love my little blog, I felt like I wanted a site with more purpose and opportunities, which is when I came up with the idea of Independent Creatives.
The site will pay homage to all things creative, and is inspired by my love of visiting craft fairs and supporting independent makers. On the site will be a blog section, where I plan to write about different events that are coming up, new makers and bloggers who are ones to watch and just anything or anyone that are independent and creative.
Eventually, I hope to develop directories on the site, for makers and bloggers who truly represent the quality of their craft. This idea came to me after spending many an hour searching for products and presents on sites such as Etsy and there are just so many pages to scroll through that trying to find quality, beautiful products can be hard. I thought that it would be great to have a listing of a select few creatives on my site, whose work is the best, so you don’t have to waste time in finding them, as they would all be found on Independent Creatives.
Depending on whether this all works out, it would be my dream to also set up a little online shop on the site, where people can sell their products if they wish. We would be talking a long way off with that though!
There we have it, that’s pretty much the gist of what I am working on! There are some more not-so-exciting details which I will not bore you with, I am just giving you all a heads up about this venture and an explanation as to why I have not been active on this blog or my social media. Whilst it is still summertime, I hope that I can work on Independent Creatives, whilst still doing some normal blog posts from time to time. However, depending on how everything goes and with going back to university in September, I will slowly start to make Independent Creatives my only site and form of social media.
If this project interests you in any way, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
You might be a blogger wanting to be included on the directory or a maker interested in supporting the site. Whatever it is, let me know and I will give you more details about my plans.
